Impact Talks: The Stellar Approach

Impact Talks: The Stellar Approach

An engaging and motivating online talk series by entrepreneurs and experts who are helping to create real change around the world.

Welcome to Impact Talks!

The word ‘Impact’ has been overused and misused in today’s world of green washing and disinformation.

Through our exciting new online series, Impact Talks, we want to put the meaning back into the word ‘Impact’ by welcoming entrepreneurs and experts who are helping to create real change to speak about the work they do and how others can become changemakers as well.

Join us each month to put some “oomph” back into your lunchtimes and hear from motivating speakers on the topics of:

  • Sustainable Food
  • Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
  • Circular Economy
  • Green Tech

These are the focus area of our four ecosystems, where we see the greatest potential for entrepreneurship and collective action. Get in touch to find out more about opportunities to collaborate!

Our speaker this month:

About the speaker: Simon Berkler is co-founder of TheDive and has been working as an entrepreneur and organizational consultant for over 20 years. He studied media and communication sciences and holds a doctorate in media economics. He is a trained systemic and integral organizational developer and has many years of experience in supporting medium-sized and large companies in their respective transformation processes. With TheDive, he works on systemic innovation. Recently, he published the book “The Stellar Approach”, where he examines how a regenerative Economy could look like and what organizations can contribute to making this shift happening.

About the Talk: How do you redesign an entire organization so that it is not only economically healthy, but also cares about preserving and restoring our living environment? And how do you deal with the conflicting goals that arise? The Stellar Approach is a pragmatic transformation toolkit that shows organizations how they can gradually align themselves with sustainable and regenerative business practices and thus both shape the future viability of their own company and contribute to the regenerative transformation of the economy. In his talk, Simon will give an overview of what “regenerative” actually means and will explain how the Stellar Approach as a practice-based framework helps to transform companies from the inside out.

What you will gain from this talk:

  • Deeper understanding of the concept of a “Regenerative Economy”
  • The role of organizations in the realm of regenerative change Overview of the Stellar key elements (principles, practices and virtues)
  • Exchange and discussion on drivers and obstacles of a regenerative shift

Navigating Networking and Building Alliances for Female Founders

Join us & an engaged team of successful female founders & professionals to gain inspiration & actionable insights to leverage your networks.

What networks are crucial when starting-up? What strategies can help you build meaningful connections with industry leaders? How can you boost your networking skills to realize your business and professional goals?

Networking plays a critical role for the success of women in entrepreneurship and professional careers . While access to networks has increasingly been recognized as an important way to empower women and address inequalities in the entrepreneurship ecosystem, it is important to master your own style and strategy for networking in a male-dominated environment. Holding to some guiding principles from our guest keynote speaker and an inspiring team of female founders will help you grasp your networking skills and already practice the learnings in a safe and inclusive environment.

Join us alongside an engaged team of successful female founders and professionals to gain inspiration and actionable insights to build your strategies to leverage your networks – whether to find investors, assemble teams, or build your circle of allies for your business and ideas!

Through a keynote and three roundtables, connect with inspiring leaders and founders who will share their experiences, highs, lows and resilience stories! Ask them your burning questions in the round tables, discuss your ideas with like-minded peers and connect with supportive players from the Swiss start-up ecosystem during a networking brunch.

Program

  • Keynote Speech
  • Roundtable Discussions: connect with successful female founders and professionals and ask your burning questions about their journeys, as well as about their own stories, and discuss with peers.
  • Facilitated networking & Apero

PME romandes : Relever le défi de la gestion de la matiÚre

PME romandes : Quelles opportunités pour faire face au défi de la gestion de la matiÚre ?

Parmi les nombreux enjeux de la transition, l’augmentation du prix des matiĂšres premiĂšres et les changements lĂ©gislatifs, notamment sur la gestion des dĂ©chets, amĂšnent leur lot de dĂ©fis et de pressions supplĂ©mentaires pour les PME romandes. Ces problĂ©matiques nĂ©cessitent de repenser les modĂšles d’affaires et de mener un travail de fond sur toute la chaĂźne de valeur. Il faut donc considĂ©rer les boucles dans un processus aujourd’hui encore trop linĂ©aire et penser la matiĂšre dans toute sa composition/montage et dĂ©composition/dĂ©montage pour que la rĂ©cupĂ©ration des matiĂšres entre dans une boucle circulaire.

Dans cette confĂ©rence-atelier, des experts du domaine feront un point sur la situation actuelle et donneront des pistes et des ressources concrĂštes pour une transition dĂ©risquĂ©e. Des intervenants et des PME partageront Ă©galement leurs propres expĂ©riences. Cet Ă©vĂ©nement fait partie du programme “PME de demain” portĂ© par Impact Hub et InTent (plus d’informations ci-dessous).

Programme: Le programme détaillé vous sera communiqué par la suite, il comprendra notamment :

  • La prĂ©sence d’experts des modĂšles circulaires et de la lĂ©gislation liĂ©e Ă  la gestion de la matiĂšre
  • L’intervention de PME qui partageront leurs expĂ©riences et leurs approches face Ă  ces dĂ©fis
  • Un court Ă©change sous la forme d’un atelier participatif, afin de prĂ©ciser les dĂ©fis en fonction du contexte et des particularitĂ©s des PME prĂ©sentes

——————————————————————-

L’entrĂ©e est payante. Les membres du programme et les partenaires bĂ©nĂ©ficient de tarifs et de conditions prĂ©fĂ©rentiels. RĂ©servez votre place dĂšs maintenant ici.

*Qu’est-ce que le programme PME de demain ?

PME de demain est une sĂ©rie d’évĂ©nements thĂ©matiques proposĂ©e par Impact Hub et InTent. Il est destinĂ© aux entreprises romandes qui souhaitent s’informer sur les dĂ©fis et les opportunitĂ©s de la transition. Le programme est rĂ©alisĂ© en partenariat avec la Chambre vaudoise du commerce et de l’industrie (CVC) et la FĂ©dĂ©ration Suisse des entreprises.

L’objectif de “PME de demain” est d’apporter une information aux PME romandes sur les questions de transition : pressions lĂ©gislatives, gestion de la matiĂšre, digitalisation et profession durable.

Avec ce programme en 5 Ă©vĂ©nements, les PME ont un accĂšs facilitĂ© aux ressources existantes, ainsi qu’aux informations spĂ©cifiques leur permettant de mieux comprendre les enjeux de la transition, ceci tout en se connectant Ă  leur rĂ©seau.
